DISEC Day One
Published on February 20, 2017
Model United Nations, also known as MUN, is an actual simulation of the United Nations.
DISEC, the First Committee of the General Assembly has symbolically reaffirmed its name – for it truly became the first committee for the majority of its delegates.
The very new exciting experience of Model United Nations was flavored not only by the necessity to work entirely in English, but also by the complex and extremely relevant agendas.

It was up to the delegates to choose whether they want to discuss private military companies or foreign military intervention in Kurdistan and Syria for that day; however, there is first time for everything.
The committee is led by the talented and experienced board of Directors: Paul Pichlmeier, Nick Bitsadze and Sören Wehrheim have successfully turned the beginning of the session into an insightful MUN workshop. Their joint efforts truly contributed to the delegates' understanding of the Rules of Procedure and its dozens of peculiarities and nuances. In the meantime, the issue of “the seventh official language of the Unites Nations” was chosen for the mock-session, so that the delegates could practice the newly-gained skills right away. Salome Baliashvili, the representative of the United States of America, shared the impressions she had so far: “I am a bit nervous, for it is not only my first time in MUN, but also the very first project I participate in in English. Though I do enjoy how disciplined the committee is. I am one hundred percent sure that MUN will become a significant part of my life from now on!”.
Not all of the delegates were new to the MUN concept though; Stanislav Pavlovsky, the representative of Austria, came to Tbilisi from Moscow, Russia, and brought his inspiration and dedication to MUN with him. Moreover, Stanislav is an experienced delegate, having up to eleven MUN conferences held in Russia and Europe on his current list.

Fascinated by his first time in Georgia, and having already seen Borjomi and Alazani Valley, Stanislav explained his personal goal to achieve at LDAMUN. “My aim here is to help the newcoming delegates to understand MUN's values and principles. These first steps of them are of incredible importance, for they are going to determine their readiness to try MUN again. And it is always fascinating to be in an unexperienced delegate's shoes in a new country!”.

Ivane Javakhishvili State University also known as Tbilisi State University. This is the place, where our conference will be held.
Thus, Stanislav feels partial responsibility for maintaining the proper pace of the session and making the whole comprehension of the Rules of Procedure easier for his fellow colleagues. “I remember how breathtaking it was to do MUN for the very first time”, he recalled. “Since the Rules of Procedure is something entirely new for you, you are literally cautious of every step you take. Moreover, my first experience was in English, which made it especially challenging – but rewarding”.
The committee's decision was to start with the agenda on foreign military intervention in international conflicts due to its relevancy and the evident cases being discussed. Since the workshop on the rules of procedure contributed significantly to the delegates' self-confidence, the proper pace was set and maintained till the end of the session. The whole committee agreed on the pattern of measures that should be reflected in the working paper; the states' responsibility in terms of international military actions was clearly the cornerstone issue, articulated numerous times by the delegation of New Zealand (Mirek Sanh La).
Thus, the first day of work in DISEC, held in a truly productive and disciplined atmosphere, set a promising start in resolving the above-mentioned issues. At the end of the day, it does not really matter if it is your first MUN conference or your eighteenth; still you never know how the following events will unfold.
